Update: 2 days later this bread is still delicious, but as the flavors have developed I would definitely reduce the maple syrup even further. Next time I will add 3 TBS. Original review: This is the best banana bread recipe I've tried! It's very moist and flavorful. I reduced the maple syrup to 1/4 cup because I added some chocolate chips. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. Thanks for sharing!!!

This is amazing! Wondered where the soy/almond milk was but took it on faith and followed the recipe since the maple syrup and banana provided plenty of moisture and it is delicious! The maple syrup gives it a rich flavour, I can't imagine replacing this beautiful flavour with agave as some reviewers have mentioned, but to each their own. Highly recommend and try the original version before you start making's perfect as is. Having said that, will have to make a chocolate chip, nut free version for my daughter's school lunches. Thank you for sharing!

made this recipes a few times, making adjustments as I usually do.
I used 2 cups of spelt flour (have also used soft whole wheat flour), 4 organic bananas instead of 3, 1/3 cup of Earth's Balance in place of the oil, only added 1/3 cup of organic cane sugar because I added a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/3 cup of soymilk(have also used almond milk) and added 2 egg replacers .If I have them, I have also added organic walnuts Wow, this would be my favorite version yet- just mildly sweet and very moist and cake-like. It does not taste vegan at all.
